Five for Friday

Last week I got The Hummingbird Bakery cookbook.

Yesterday I made 5 recipes from it. I think 5 new recipes in one day might be a record for me!

The Atlas has a work shout today and maybe I quite like the thought of being impressive from a distance.

Not that I’m competitive or anything (I did tell my mum when I was 5 there is no point running in a race if you can’t win it!).

Green Tea cupcakes with green tea syrup in the icing.

Pineapple and Coconut using coconut cream.

Marshmallow (The Atlas ate 2 last night so they must be good)

American Peanut and Chocolate Cookies

and Lemon Cupcakes.

Very pleased with my efforts until I put the brownie on too high and over-cooked it a bit.

What’s making you happy on Friday??

  1. That baking makes me smile, Also we had a fabulous full run through of Hamlet last night. Just thought you might want to know that opening night is sold out! only 3 other performances! So if you want to see this old hand play a seriously dysfunctional queen come along. Making me happy today – all the wonderful cast and crew who are making this performance something special – last night’s rehearsal put me on a high!

  2. Impressive indeed! I wouldn’t mind one of those lemon ones. I love anything with lemon icing. Well I’ve only had cakes and muffins with lemon icing but I’m sure I could do my veggies with it too.

  3. Delicious and adore your cake stand! I hope you had some grateful folk round to help you eat all those delights?! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
